    A specific focus on scanning features (plus short general review), October 25, 2012

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)
    This unit was tested on a Windows 7 Home Premium desktop workstation.

    SHORT REVIEW OF NON-SCANNING FEATURES:

    Yes, this does have a small footprint, but note the extra 6 inches of height and 3 inches of depth needed when trays are extended for printing. Setup was easy, though if you know what you’re doing, I recommend connecting the printer to your wireless network BEFORE you install the software on CD to your PC – you can then just say “printer is already on network” when prompted during installation. I tested ALL advertised features (including AirPrint and send and receiving FAX) and was able to get them all working to varying degrees. Per page printing costs are fairly standard for an inkjet (7-10 cents per page black and white; 20-25 cents for color including nicer photo paper). Speed is “quick” and not “super fast.” Big batch jobs will still require a laser printer. To keep the size of this review reasonable, I’ll leave it to other reviews to supply more specifics other than scanning features.

    SCANNING FEATURES:

    Note that there is a less expensive version of this printer, the Epson WorkForce WF-2530 which is virtually identical to the WF-2540 being reviewed here. The one major difference in the scanning features, discussed below, is that the cheaper WF-2530 does not have an external USB interface. This means that the WF-2530 must be attached to a computer by wifi or USB cable in order to scan. Otherwise, other than the extra interface option for an ethernet connection and a slightly different control display on the WF-2540 being reviewed here, it appears to be identical in size, speed, and function.

    That being said, one of the best features of this all-in-One (WF-2540) is that it does have that external USB port. This actually allows the unit to be a stand-alone, non-attached, non-networked scanning station. If your workstation breaks, your network goes down, or you run out of ink, you can still scan documents to a USB drive and take them elsewhere to print, email, or whatever. As well, you can use as a stand-alone photocopier.

    The second best feature for scanning is the automatic document feeder (ADF). It can hold only 30 pages, and was a little finicky when I used thicker source paper to scan. Still, ADF’s are a great feature for an inexpensive all-in-one unit like this. Note that if you scan directly from the control panel of the unit, your only choices are 200, 300, and 600 dpi resolution, and either PDF or jpeg formats only. The PDF is NOT searchable with no default of optical character recognition (OCR). The included ABBYY software cannot convert non-searchable PDFs to searchable (OCRed) PDFs. If you save scans as jpeg images the included ABBYY software CAN load and convert jpegs to searchable PDFs.

    Using the workstation as a stand-alone scanner, I was able to create and store to attached USB drive a 5 page pdf document scanned at 200 dpi in color mode in 160 seconds (32 seconds/page). The same test document scanned at 600 dpi in color mode took 260 seconds (52 seconds/page). Rule of thumb would be 30-60 seconds per page depending on resolution.

    Using the included EPSON Scan software, which runs on your computer, you can choose from a larger number of options than the limited ones from the control panel of the printer. E.g., you can set resolution from 60-9200 dpi, choose color smoothing, set to scan in gray scale, etc..

    Scanning speed with a wireless connection varied greatly depending upon how far the WF-2540 is from your wifi router – wifi connection speed and strength is critical. Using the same 5 page document and the EPSON Scan software with the WF-2540 in wireless mode, I needed 20 minutes to produce a document when the unit was 50 feet away from my wifi router. Moving the WF-2540 to about 20 feet away, the same job took about 8 minutes. Connected with a USB cable to my PC, the same job took about 6 minutes. It was STILL much slower than the direct scan to attached USB device.

    Rule: scanning and creating documents via wifi WILL be slower, and with a weaker wifi connection can be unusably slow. Consider how far your WF-2540 will be from your wifi router.

    I give this 5 stars for being an excellent small office solution with a lot of built in flexibility (especially the USB scan and store capability). Connect by ethernet, wifi network, USB cable, or use as a stand-alone scan, copy or fax unit and you’re ready to go.

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)
    I’m not quite sure what else you could be looking for that you won’t find with the WF-2540? Epson has made a top of the line, ink jet multi-function printer, perfect for a small office or home use that gives you wireless connectivity.

    The Epson Workforce has it all, a flatbed scanner, copier functions, the ability to connect wirelessly from you PC, Laptop and Ipad, and a speedy printer that does not sacrifice quality. I’ve put this printer through it’s paces already. I’ve been scanning in a lot of old photos so that I can share these old photos with other family members. I’ve been scanning in photos from the 1910’s through the 2000’s, and the scanner is quick, provides great quality and the Epson software that comes with the WF-2540 allows me to crop, fix red-eye and enhance some of these older photos so that they really pop. This has been a huge undertaking that the Epson printer has made much easier.

    While scanning the photos I’ve found some wonderful pics of my parents as kids and wanted to print them out. Using generic Staples brand inkjet photo paper, the Epson provides great photo quality prints. I’ve framed a few of them and no one has any clue that I’ve given them a copy run off of a home inkjet printer!

    I like too that the printer takes seperate ink cartridges for each color instead of the old HP tri-color carts I was used to. So if Cyan runs out, I simply replace the cyan cartridge. I don’t have to toss out the unused Magenta and Yellow ink. In this economy every penny counts!!

    Highly recommended, this is a slick, fast, quiet and great looking printer that packs the same punch as a printer twice it’s price.

    Very Nice Printer, typical software, a few minor problems, November 4, 2012

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)

    I used to repair PC’s and always dreaded the call when some would start by saying “My printer…”
    I hate dealing with printers. Not because of the hardware but because of the software packages that are notoriously bloated and buggy, some have even been borderline malicious.
    The last Printer I bought was a black and white Brother Laser Printer/scanner and I bought it specifically because I only needed a driver package to make the whole thing run, windows print menu’s handle every aspect of the printer from scanning, to faxing and printing, so, that said, let me just jump into this.

    SET UP:
    Set up was pretty typical, follow the installation instructions closely and you shouldn’t have any problems. I’m running Windows 7 64bit and the software even configured the wireless set-up through a USB cable I attached to my PC temporarily. I basically sat back for about 5 minutes and just clicked next, filled out my account info for registration (and Epson Connect), plugged in the USB cable, unplugged it once it was done and then started using the printer. I was impressed. Like most printers the USB cable is not included so you might want to pick one up unless you have a spare lying around, it’s not necessary but it makes set-up a lot easier.

    SOFTWARE:
    While Epsons software isn’t a huge break from what I expected it is definitely a little bit friendlier (both user and resource friendly) than some of the other packages I’ve dealt with. HP’s drive me nuts, total resource hogs and massively bloated software.
    Aside from the lengthy instal and registration for Epson Connect now that the software is installed it uses about 33MB’s of RAM as it runs in the background, comparatively that’s actually pretty good and as a Multimedia developer it’s really important to me to squeeze every drop I can from my system.

    Software aside, the printer itself was a big surprise. I got it for review from the Amazon Vine program so I wasn’t really sure what to expect, I usually do a lot of research before I add to my studio but I needed a high quality color printer for my proofs so I gave it a shot.

    STANDARD USAGE:
    I haven’t had it long so I can’t speak to it’s durability but so far it’s performance (with some small exceptions) it’s really impressive. It’s easy to use and once I figured out the alternative printing methods I’m really happy with it. It’s a quick little printer too, which is nice. I’ll go into some detail below.

    EPSON CONNECT (print via email):
    The first thing I set up was the Epson Connect service. This basically allows you to email a document or image to your printer as long as it’s set up on your wireless network.
    So I sent a 16 megapixel photo (I’m including an image in the user photo’s) and it printed out quickly and beautifully even on standard settings.

    PHOTO PRINTING ON PHOTO PAPER:
    Next I set set up the high gloss photo paper and printed out some 6×4’s. This is gunna sound like an exaggeration but I really can’t tell the difference between these prints and orders I get from companies like shutterfly. I am thoroughly impressed by the quality of the photo’s that come out of this thing. I printed 2 from my PC and one more from my Samsung Galaxy tab (more on that below)

    HIGH QUALITY PRINT ON STANDARD PAPER:
    Next I printed another photo on standard paper through Adobe Photoshop and switched to high quality print settings. As is typical this saturates the paper with ink and regular weight paper comes out a little warped from the wetness. They do this because standard paper absorbs ink and causes it to look lightened or dull. Aside from the warping and slightly lighter color saturation from the regular paper the print looks pretty exceptional. Almost on par with the photo paper prints that I ran on standard quality.

    PRINT VIA MOBILE DEVICE (YES!):
    Next I wanted to try to print from my tablet. As part of my profession I do a lot of photography, I have a class 10 microSDHC card in my Canon Rebel t3i that I pop out of the adapter and stick right into my Galaxy Tab 2 10.1″. From there I can check and edit my RAW files on the job. I was really hoping I’d have a way to print some draft developed photo’s straight from the tab as well.
    Out of the box most smart phones and tablets don’t come with this (my Samsung Tab only supported Samsung printers) but Epson forunately has a free app in the play store called Epson iPrint. It recognized the printer via the WiFi network and once I edited the RAW files, converted them to JPG and moved them to the internal card I was able to print straight to the printer. The app took a little fiddling and set up to get it to work and do what I wanted but I figured it out within 10-20 minutes and had it working.
    Alternatively I could’ve just emailed the photo from my tab as well. This is a huge selling point for me, especially when paired with the quality…
